Joint precoding over a master-slave coordination link

Abstract : This paper considers the problem of transmitter (TX) cooperation with distributed channel state information (CSI), where two or more transmitters seek to jointly precode messages while communicating over a rate-limited coordination link. Specifically we address a so-called master-slave scenario where one master (M-) TX is endowed with perfect CSI while K slave (S-) TXs have zero prior CSI information. We are interested in possible strategies for how the M-TX may efficiently guide the S-TXs over the coordination links so as to maximize the network's figure of merit. Strategies related to communicating quantized CSI or quantized precoding decisions are described and compared. Optimal and sub-optimal low complexity approaches are shown, exhibiting gains over conventional methods.
